All else isn't equal including power consumption and heat output, reference cooler design, and PCB size. In addition, many people prefer Nvidia drivers.

Ultimately, they perform the same and cost the same. Yet one seems to be held to a lower standard.

Seems like my 760 ACX is inbetween a 970 and a 960, leaning more twords the 970. No upgrades for me!

I'm not familiar with the US stores but on Newegg there's at least one r9 280 from powercolor for 189$ and the cheapest GTX 960 is still 199$. And I'm not entirely sure but I think there have been sales and there's always the rebate option on the r9 280. Either way I think we're already paying too much attention to this card considering what might be coming in the near future.

All valid points, except that I find the performance of the 960 lacking given its recent release. Obviously Nvidia disagrees since they released it as-is anyway and that's fine by me because I won't be [stuck] using it.

Power assumption aside: they perform the same and cost the same right now. Yet the 960 is overpriced?

They are both overpriced.

I think more of the issue is that NVIDIA did the very minimal for a gtx 760 to gtx 960. They made a GPU that competes with 3 year old cards. They did nothing to move the mid-range card bracket. Most of here are just plain disappointed that this card isn't at least on par with the gtx 770. Last year we got gtx 780ti performance for 200 dollars less with the gtx 980. Now we get a 10-20% performance hike for what? The same price bracket as the old gtx 760? Not really the news we wanted to hear here.

I think I spend 140 dollars on my girlfriend r9 280 in September and that came with three games.
